Surviving the festive season

153a7219 75900

They say it’s the season to be jolly, but are you? During the holiday season, we often expect to be the happiest, but this is not always the case.

If you were sad, I doubt it will change because it is finally Christmas. Days and times change, but the emotions you feel do not. However, there are a few things you can do to cheer yourself up.

Cultivate gratitude

Gratitude does not imply pretending everything is fine or denying what is wrong.

Cultivating gratitude involves choosing to devote your time and attention to what you value. This is critical for gaining control of your experience and, ultimately, your well-being. During this season, look for things to be grateful for, no matter how small.

Everything is in the details.

Do things for others

Helping those in need of extra support, love, and care is perhaps the most important thing we can do to brighten up the holidays. No act of kindness is too small, whether it is donating to a local organization, donating to a charity, or sponsoring a family in need.

You can help fight food insecurity by donating to the most vulnerable communities, or by finding a food bank near you to make a direct food donation or financial contribution, or by volunteering your time.

We can continue to build and maintain strong communities in 2023 and beyond if we work together.

While we understand that the hustle and bustle of the holidays can add to your stress, we hope that these tips will bring you and your family joy, happiness, and cheer, and help you make the most of this special season.

Do things for you

The holiday season can be a time of joy and happiness, but it can also be a time when people feel especially stressed, worried, or lonely. As we near the end of the year, consider how you can take care of yourself over the next six weeks.

Make time to do what you enjoy and spend time with the people who make you the happiest. Remember to think about what you can do for yourself in 2023!

Merry Christmas!
